Critical Acclaim
‘Nigel White has provided a very worthwhile contribution to the literature on the law relating to armed conflict and arms control with his Advanced Introduction to International Conflict and Security Law. His book succeeds in combining in depth coverage of a broad range of topics with accessibility. It will be valuable in teaching (post) graduate level courses in the areas of law covered, including the law governing the use of force, the law of armed conflict and arms control regimes, as well as serving as a useful tool for researchers in those areas of the law. It also makes a number of interesting observations on how the law relates to policy and other considerations which will help the reader put the legal dimension of armed conflict into a broader perspective.’
– T.D. Gill, Emeritus Professor of Military Law, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
